Dear Theseus,   I, Lysander, am writing in the hopes of urging you to reconsider your law stating that one must marry whomever one’s parents choose.

I want to execute and understand the fundamentals of this dance style and move on to variations of the basics... Continue Reading →

Zip Doc of Learing 3

Take a moment to reflect on your inquiry plan (calendar). Do you need to make any revisions to your original plan? If so, why? If you haven’t made any changes to your plan, why do you feel you have been so successful?   As I reflect on my calendar, I realize that I need to make some slight revisions to my original plan as I am a bit...
